Tents aren't that expensive andwewon't be far from home if it does turn to shit out there. (plus we can always check to forecast anyway)
However, don't skimp on the sleeping bag, spend $200+ and get a good one rated down to at least -10 comfort zone.
While it might not get that cold, having a really warm bag makes the nights that much better.

I've camped at Bartletts Creek in the middle of winter while hunting and yea, it was a tad chilly.
